According to locals on there it is the closure of the landfill in the south of the island which has caused the problem, closed as it's full.
That's what we heard last year and saw an article in the Corfu press too. Creating a problem all over the island. Not good for anyone and no easy solution!

Quote from todays news:

"The European Commission said Thursday that it is taking Greece to court for the inadequate management of waste at a landfill on the Ionian island of Corfu.

The Commission found that the operation of the landfill near the village of Temploni, in the center of the island, has consistently flouted European waste management standards since 2007."

I spoke to Dimitris last night he said would speak to the council, to see if anything could be resolved locally, possibly including re-cycling!

Hi Andy we arrived yesterday . It is not a strike but rather that the landfill site on the island is closed. Was extremely shocked by the mounds of rubbish on the streets.. we had thought we would go into Corfu town one evening but we will leave it until the rubbish is sorted. Here in Arillas there are bags and bags of rubbish stacked up by the bins but the good news is that poppy from Bardis sun studios got on the phone yesterday to some of the other local business owners and they have come up with a plan and a lot of the rubbish should be moved today.

Thanks Sonia, let's hope that they find a solution.  I feel really sorry for the local people and businesses as it may put off a lot of visitors from returning especially first timers , first impressions and all that.

The bin men have been and taken the rubbish away. Although they were not altogether efficient at the jobs, a lot of areas have been left strewn with litter around them, but a big improvement.
